Still ways around it man. You can do lunges for leg stuff. What about hex bars for deads? Pull ups means that you can probably do pull downs and rows? 

 

I'm guessing you're opposed to having surgery for the shoulder and are just going to make do with a more limited workout scheme?

 

The best advice I got post injury was to let pain be your guide. Try one new thing light in the gym every session and see how your body reacts. It took me a long time to find out what worked at the start when I'd get flare ups all the time.

I've been dealing with it for a year now, at this point I know what I can and cannot do.

Pretty sure I'm dealing with a minor slap tear in my left shoulder right now. Judging by what hurts / what doesn't. Dunno, injuries happen from working out and it's just the reality of it. It isn't exclusive to just powerlifting. My friend is nearing 40 and has lifting for awhile now; perfect form and perfect mobility. He is nearing a knee replacement or some sort of surgury, just the reality of it unfortunately.

On that note I subscribed to Darkside Strength membership. Really like the injury prevention stuff they have been making and hoping to use a lot of it this year.

I still play with stuff every now and then but those experiments usually end in failures lol. Just let me enjoy my rationalizations in peace!

Blah, I think not deadlifting has created an imbalance. My left hamstring has been feeling weird during squats and my form is a little off. I'm going to go back to SLDLs for a while and see if that helps.

I mean your rationalization makes sens. You have history of a labrum tear in hip, acl tear, and a rotator cuff tear. That's pretty much covers all bases of being fucked and I could imagine that being very challenging to work around. We all have stuff to work around and it gets worse as we get older. Did you ever figure out what made you so injury prone? Something had to been weak or positioning was off, or you were just super unlucky.

I think eason is the one with the hip tear. I just have a whole host of other injuries.

i'm bad at backing off if something hurts. That's how I got my pubic symphasis/SI Joint sprain/slipped disk (all of which were minor and I've recovered from, thankfully). Osgood schlatter is just genetic. I was also fitted for high arches (genetics). The labrum tear (drunken arm wrestling contest) and ACL tear (soccer) that have really sidelined me are injuries from life and not working out.

I think i'm just unlucky. as a kid i was uncoordinated, inflexible, and relatively unathletic; now i'm just built and mildly able to run but i still don't consider myself to have any natural athleticism or coordination (and my flexibility still sucks). I mean I have an easy time of building muscle and gaining/losing weight, and I have great aesthetic genetics (besides height) so it's a mixed bag and i'm not necessarily complaining about my lot in life--like I said I think i just have to face the music and focus on different aspects of fitness.

I had a WTF moment. Light weight pulled my right pec when warming up with the bar...Fuck it! Gonna plow through work out. Just benched 225x10. Was going for 12 reps.

The trick to preventing injury in the gym is to strengthen the susceptible areas and not waste your time in a quest for mobility or do ridiculous gypsy shit like nerve flossing.

What's a nerve flossing?

Look it up. It's another one of those hilarious routines from the mobility crew that has zero basis in physiology.

Last week 245 was hurting my right pec. Today 225 was but after dropping down to 205, no more pain. I think I feel a knot in my right pec. Anyone has any experience rubbing it out without doing deep tissue?
